BRIO Airplane - Review

(We received this item for the purpose of this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.)

We are massive fans of the BRIO brand here and have reviewed a few of their products over the years, all of which are still played with to this day.


C and E were very excited to receive a new addition to their collection - the Airplane set!


Inside the box you get the airplane itself, a pilot, passenger, suitcase and rolling stair cart. Instantly the kids got right into playing and using their imagination - something that I love that BRIO encourages. C decided he would always like to be the pilot and E, the passenger. They like to come up with little scenarios, what the pilot would say and where the passenger was lucky to be flying off too. Both of them seemed to really enjoy it.


The top of the airplane opens up and inside there are three "seats". The little characters can bend and sit tightly in (their arms are poseable too) and C discovered that if you turn the suitcase sideways it can fit too. The rolling stair cart adds to the realness and it connects magnetically to the wheel of the airplane, meaning that the characters can board just like we do in real life.


I like the mix of plastic and wood with BRIO. The people and suitcase are made entirely from plastic but the airplane and stairs are a combination. They are all very sturdy and, judging by the sets we already own too, I know they will last a long time.


Although it can be played with as a standalone set, the kids have found it very exciting to play with all their BRIOworld sets together and be able to play in different ways with various ideas. This set is recommended for children aged 3+ and even at 6 years old, C still has lots of fun with it.

The BRIO Airplane set retails at £19.99 and you can find out more and purchase it at the BRIO website.
